Indoor lockable storage racks

Hi all,
I'm in an apartment and I'm not entirely sure how to lock my bike up inside. I definitely want it locked, but I also would like to hang it on a rack. Are there any sightly indoor bike racks that are lockable?

I have indoor racks, but they're not lockable, because they are the telescoping racks that use tension to support the rack at the ceiling and floor-- no damage to my apartment.

I think the only way to make something lockable would be to securely fasten it to the wall/floor, and that would require damaging the apartment.

if you forgo the rack then you can just lock it up to whatever heavy stationary object I suppose. Most indoor racks are made so you can assemble them yourself, meaning locking them up to a rack that comes apart has no point.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
